58cm Specialized CruX Expert EVO + Power Meter and R8000 Derailleur - $1500

Hey Folks,

I've decided my 58cm 2015 Specialized CruX Expert EVO is just too big for me and need to trade down to a 56. This bike has two seasons of mostly fair weather cross racing on it as well as about 10 gravel rides and some commuting. It's got an aluminum Gen 2 Stages power meter and I upgraded the rear derailleur to an Ultegra R8000 so I could run an 11-34t Ultegra cassette. Sorry. I forgot to take the pedals off before taking photos. No pedals included.

The specs:
- 2015 Specialized CruX Expert EVO (58cm) - Full Ultegra build and carbon FSA crank (https://www.specialized.com/us/en/crux-expert-evo/p/107051)
- Stages Power Meter - Gen 2 on aluminum FSA Energy arm (also have the original FSA carbon arm)
- Upgraded Ultegra R8000 rear derailleur and 11-34 Ultegra cassette for more range on steep forest roads.
- 2 Specialized Rib Cage bottle cages (not pictured, one with a crack that isn't visible and doesn't affect function)
- No pedals included

The wear and tear:
- Scratches on the ends of the shifters (pictured)
- Scratch on the end of the rear axle (pictured)
- Missing grommet on rear hydraulic brake line where it enters downtube (pictured)
- Scuffed bar tape (pictured)
- Small tear on back of saddle (pictured)
- Brake pads are going to need replacing relatively soon

Mechanically, the bike is in great shape and there are no major issues. I've always kept the drivetrain very clean and replaced the chain when needed. I did wash out a small handful of times during races, causing the scratches on the shifters and bar tape. I've tried to be fully transparent in this post, but please let me know if I can answer any questions for you. Thanks!
